Ie8 Hangs With Flash Based Banner Ads On Web Pages

Ie 8 hangs with automatic flash based banner "ads" on web pages. I do not know what to check but sometimes ie 8 seems to "hang" when accessing web pages that have automatic loading flash banner "ads. " It seems to occur often on windows 7 and occasionally on windows xp versions of ie 8. I have removed flash player and the activex entries a few times but it did not seem to fix this yet.

How To Share Programs With All Users?

I set up standard user profiles in windows 7 home premium for my children plus couple of other users, but they cannot see or use any of the programs i installed under my admin account; such as ms office, itunes, etc, etc.

Could someone please help me understand how i make all programs visible to all users as there appears to be only two options when setting up a user account.

I recall that maybe i should have selected an option during program installation (ms office, itunes etc) to 'allow all users access' but do not recall seeing that option during installation.

This is my first windows 7 user experience having previously worked off xp pro.

Access By Users To Install Programs

I installed office 2010 as administrator, and now the programs do not show 'default-program' list for the other users (in the start menu). I can give them access to the programs, but cannot use them as 'default applications' for the associated file types, because they do not appear on the users' program lists. So the users can only open a .doc file by opening word and then finding the file in the directory. This is particularly annoying when trying to open an attachment to an email that is not saved to the pc

Integrate All Programs And Eliminate Different Users

Windows 7 : is there any way to eliminate user accounts and just have everything under one user (administrator)? I want all the programs and documents to be available, but i'm the only one who uses this laptop these days and hate switching between users. Before you ask, i originally set up a user (mom) because the program told me to do so. Then there were some programs that i installed but didn't work properly - i later found out they had to be set up under "administrator. " Giving myself(mom) the user admin rights does not solve the problem, as the programs crash if they're run under any user but administrator. (I already know that they shouldn't crash out, but the fact is that they do. )
Unfortunately, 90% of my files, documents and programs are installed under mom.

Install Programs - Win 7 Different Users Directories / Scheme

Will (installs of) programs such as itunes & adobe lightroom get confused by win7's different "users" scheme? On xp i had "my documents" physically moved (via properties) to a standalone drive (so i could have a certain backup of user-only files on a separate disk in case the os drive needed to be reformatted) wherein the well-written apps would install their user specific-data.

I was just about to (re)associate "my documents" to the xp "my documents", when i noticed the hierarchy is different in windows 7. Subsets such as "my photos" appear to be no longer inside "my documents" (?). After googling the subject, there also appears to be some question as to whether these new user directories even contain the actual data files.

I am almost certain that difference is going to confuse especially the reinstall of itunes (which is capable of very little tweaking in this regard), and it will not be able to locate my thousands of tunes and the album art (which are located on the separate drive:/my documents/my music/itunes.

Lightroom is also going to get confused, but i'm not as worried because it is capable of moving files around within its catalog, although it would be a pain to do. Questions are: can i rearrange this hierarchy back to xp's, and then point them to the separate data drive, or is there more going on here than i described above? 

Can this all be done with properties? And what does the lock symbol on the new folders mean?  Is there a document somewhere that discusses this difference in detail so i can figure out how to set this up?(I am running win7 ultimate on a home-built pc with a separate drives each for physical storage of video, audio, and photo. )

Yahoo Mail Doesn't Appear In List Of Email Programs In Ie8

Yahoo mail doesn't appear in the list of e-mail programs in internet explorer 8 options although i have installed the latest version of yahoo toolbar. I have an e-mail account on yahoo. I want to use yahoo mail as the default e-mail program so it opens directly when i click on any e-mail link.

I went to this page: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/settings/settings-10.html

It says that i need to install the latest version of yahoo toolbar to do that. I have done that but yahoo mail doesn't appear in the list of e-mail programs in internet explorer options, there are only hotmail and outlook. I have contacted yahoo customer care and they told me that i have to contact microsoft support about this issue, and when i tried to do that, i found there is no support by e-mail, it's only by phone, and i like to use the e-mail one.

Anyone from microsoft support or community member can help me in my issue, which is to make yahoo mail appear in the list of e-mail programs so i can choose it as default email?

Keyboard Based Navigation In Folder Pane

In earlier versions of the explorer (vista, xp, . ) I could navigate through the folders in the folder pane on the left side.going up and down, the contents of each folder was updated automatically in the right view. Thereby, i could get a fast overview of each folder's content. But since win7, the contents of each folder is only shown, if i click on it - this slows me down and is very unproductive. Where can i enable the "old" behavior? Is there any flag or secret key in the registry i can disable/enable?

Lost X64-based Display System After Optional Updates

I accepted "optional" updates and lost my x64-based display system. Was left with only a x32-based system. How do i get my x64 back without reloading hard drive and losing data? I used windows updates to accept "optional" updates to nvidia -display-geforce g105m; and atheros-network-atheros ar8131 pci-e pci-e gigabit ethernet controller. Afterwards, the screen popped up super large and i had adjust screen resolution. It only allowed me to adjust it to 32-bit resolution. 64-bit was no longer available. When i checked my system, the x64-based display system had disappeared. I now only have a x32-based system.

How do i get my x64 back without having to completely reload the back up disk and lose my data?  This happened about a week before as well, i had taken it in to the "geeks" who had a special disk and were able to just load the video part of the back up disk. I don't want to have to do this every week when there is a new update or, lesson learned, never download an optional update again. Any other options?

Win 7 No Sound, Options

Hi, been trying for two days straight now to get sound working after a windows 7 upgrade to no avail.

This was a clean install as is a new pc build and no previous os

My mother board is an asus p5ql/epu running aig high def codecs for audio

Output source is hdmi via nvidia geforce 9800 gt (tried using vga and headphones and still no sound)

I have downloaded all windows updates, also downloaded realtek high def codec driver for win 7, downloaded the latest chipsets and audio drivers from the asus website, have tried running them in vista compatibility (i had seen this mentioned elsewhere so tried it although my pc has never ran vista)

When viewing playback options i can chooses between speakers, and two versions of spdif interface (tx1 + txo)

I should mention that when playing audio the green bar which goes up and down when in sound folder works as if sound is playing normally which suggests to me that my sound card is working.

Missing Icon View Options

After a fresh install of windows 7 64bit (all updates installed) it seems my folders are missing the option to view the files icons by groups, eg modified, type etc in the 'organize' drop down list in windows exploreras shown here in http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/3952-file-folder-arrangement-group-sort-stack.html option 2 – my folders are missing the sort by and group by options, these option don't appear at all in the drop down list. It was present in my last w7 install, but it's not present in this install.

If i right click in a vacant space in the folder a window appears and in that window is my missing view options (group by, sort by etc) that should be in the 'organize' drop down list appear (along with the normal options that appear) why they aren't where they should be has got me stumped.

Unable To Change Folder Options

I'm trying to get windows 7 to allow me to see file extension. No problem getting to control panel, changing the options, hitting apply. But then nothing changes. And when i go back to control panel, everything is back to the way it was (all the boxes i checked have become unchecked again). I'm logged in as an administrator.

A similar thing happens if i try to customize my start menu by dragging icons into the area above "all programs". I get a drop-cursor, but when i drop the icon it just vanishes. Any suggestions?

Ie7 Internet Options Will Not Open

I want to upgrade to ie8 but each time it tells me that the install has brought forward an error from ie7. My ie7 will not open internet options, thus i cannot "easily" disable add-ons, etc. I have gone so far as to completely re-installing xp and sp3, re-installed ie7 (or ie8) but continue to have the same problem when i try to open ie7 internet options; the sub-screen temporarily flashes and closes (without any error message).

I have a laptop on the same home lan running vista and ie7 but i don't want to upgrade it to ie8 until my desktop will successfully install it. Most of the on-line fixes keep pointing me to ie8 pages. I could sure use a simple fix that does not entail modifying the registry.

Aero And Personalization Options Issues

Okay, so i've had this computer for about 4 months, and up until last week, i've had no problems with it. Last week, aero started malfunctioning, and now when the computer boots up, or even at random times throughout my day the computer will reset the taskbar to auto hide itself, and reset my background to the asus desktop image that was originally used when i received the computer. If i try to change it, i can only change the background, and i'm not allowed to use aero options, including changing the color to a transparent color and using aero themes. I can only access the standard windows options for editing window color/fonts etc, under personalization. If i change the background, the next time i start up my computer, or minimize a fullscreen window, it has returned to the asus desktop image.

-I have tried running the troubleshooter for aero and for the personal settings
-I have also tried clicking aero themes, and any other common solutions i've found on the internet.
-I've confirmed that aero is turned on, it's just not functioning properly.
-My system can support aero, i've used it in the past, since when i got the computer.
-I've confirmed that all services are running properly.

I'd love a solution to this problem as soon as possible.

Relocating C:users

I am about to do a fresh win7 installation on a brand new machine. I have always preferred to keep user data on a separate drive, in order to make it possible to back up all user-related stuff without necessarily having to back up the whole os.

In windows xp, it was possible to relocate the "documents and settings" directory to a drive other than "c:" by running an unattended installation. I am trying to determine whether a similar approach is necessary with win7, or whether there might be an easier way to accomplish the relocation of the "users" directory.

If the answer is that there is an easier way, i'd like to hear it. But if not, see below.

I have downloaded the waik, and its documentation, and i have been trying to find a win7 setting that would allow me to relocate the users directory. So far, i'm finding the documentation rather confusing, and i haven't yet located the right setting.

I cannot change users. I have tried everything that is offered and nothing works. Is there a big secret? I am using vista home premier.

I cannot create any new users, and if i try to change name it tells me it won't recognize all the figures from the bottom row of keyboard. , . /}{:?>< Etc. I have tried to share all the files but it requires a password and program will not let me create password.

One Pc With Multiple Users

I have one pc with multiple users (with text-based passwords) oneguest account turned on (with a blank-password).

I want to share some files, some folders, and some libraries between different users but exclude guest users. I have not been able to do it with any of the share schemes that seem to always address computers on a network and not multiple users on a single pc.

What tools do i as the administrator use to share selected files, or selected folders, or selected libraries between selected user accounts on the same pc? Everything i tried in the "share" tools seem to fail for some reason that i cannot fathom. The entire set of files was copied over from a failed xp pc to a new windows 7 pc with specific files copied to non-public folders for specific users.

I know how to use the public libraries that all users can see, to include guest.

How To Make A Program Available To All Users?

How do i make a program available to all users if the program was installed for one user. Basically the problem is that i created another user account but only a few random applications show up on it and i'd really hate to have to reinstall some +50 programs so my computer can function normally on my secondary user account. I am able to locate many of the installed programs by snooping around in explorer and have been able to run a few by creating shortcuts, but many of them (spybot, itunes, google chrome, the list goes on!) Do nothing when the .exe is opened and are rendered useless (on that account).
